Jerusalem's Temple Institute takes biblical statement 'build me a Temple and I shall dwell amongst you' literally, enlisting hundreds of teens for this endeavor

by Kobi Nahshoni

Mourning over the destruction of Jerusalem is normal in the month of Av, but at the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faith Movement all focus is on the "big day" - the day in which the Third Temple will be built.

As part of the preparations, hundreds of teenagers are expected to sign the "Temple Treaty" and to proclaim, "We commit to doing everything in our power to abide by this commandment and to devote at least half an hour a week toward this effort."

In the youth conference conducted by the Temple Institute in the Old City of Jerusalem, scheduled for Thursday, participants will discuss possible plans of action to further the building of the Temple.

Under the title, "Building the Temple, it's in Our Hands," lessons will be given by rabbis identified with the Temple and for the first time ever, a treaty pertaining to the necessity of building the Temple will be revealed.

"God commanded us in his Torah, 'build me a Temple and I shall dwell amongst you'," as written in the document, "All of Israel must do everything they can to obey this commandment..."

In a conversation with Ynet, Temple Institute Director Rabbi Yehuda Glick vowed that this is the first event in a series that will institutionalize and widen youth activities.

"(Deceased general) Mota Gur said (during the conquest of east Jerusalem in the Six-Day War), 'The Temple Mount is in our hands', and I say now the Temple is in our hands," said Glick.

"The treaty we composed contains a bunch of suggestions like Temple studies, embroidering priestly clothes, illustration for books on the subject, enhancing awareness, fundraising, or any other activity we believe can further the building of the Temple.

"No clause calls for the launching of LAW missiles or the exploding of the mosque at the Temple Mount," Glick stressed.

Women are also expected to participate in Thursday's event, during which they will watch a performance intended to encourage them to be active in the advancement of the Temple.

"This Temple is not just something historic stored in a memory chest," said Glick, "everyone has the opportunity to contribute to this goal."
